It’s almost here! After 15 years, fans of FLCL will be able to enjoy 12 brand new episodes split between two different series which will be known as FLCL Progressive and FLCL Alternative with season 2 set to premier on Adult Swim starting June 2nd at 11:30 p.m PT/ET and season 3 airing in September.
Co-produced by Adult Swim and Production IG, the series will introduce a new cast of characters each season with a familiar face returning to make things a little interesting. Kari Wahlgren will reprise of her role as Haruhara Haruko for the series and will feature brand new music from The Pillows.
Here is what we know about the two seasons:
Up first, FLCL: Progressive tells the story of 14-year-old Hidomi, her classmate Ide, and two otherworldly beings, “Jinyu” and “Haruha Raharu,” who are determined to unlock their hidden potential. Mixed up in this is an all-powerful force known as “ATOMSK,” a gorgeous vintage car… and a certain Vespa Scooter.
Following FLCL: Progressive will be another new season, FLCL: Alternative, which hands the series over to a totally different team of young creators who will redefine the meaning of “sequel.” The series centers on the misadventures of 17-year-old Kana, a high school junior who spends her days hanging out with her besties, Mossan, Hijiri, and Pets. They live unremarkable lives, until the day a Mecha falls out of the sky, along with a strange woman named “Haruko.” Her plans for Kana and her friends involve the force known as “ATOMSK.” Kana will have to risk everything to decide whether or not to help… like she really has a choice!
